What is it?
Prams. We spend a large part of our early lives in them and then splashes of our later lives pushing them. In between, these titans of the pavement lie gathering dust in our garages and sheds, unloved and often forgotten.
Now it’s time to bring them out and revive a Great British tradition, that of bombing about with a pram in a race to the death (well not death, but certainly something quite serious).
On Saturday 22nd July, the Great British Pram Race will return to the iconic Alexandra Palace.
The pram race is a 3.56km run around the south slopes of Alexandra Palace, which any adults (aged 13 years and over) may take part in. Teams can be made up of one to six people and participants should remember that the event is a fun race and shouldn’t be taken too seriously. Prizes are usually awarded, not only to the winning teams, but for the best pimped out buggy and fancy dress, so get creative.
All profits from the event will be going to MNDA. So don’t be too posh to push, and get ready for the Great British Pram Race.
